    Summary

    “Perhaps he did sometimes push himself too hard, Levin thought to himself, but what better way to keep the mind off of the pains of heartbreak than to dedicate oneself to good, honest work? He had sought distraction all spring and summer, and now, deep into autumn, this certainly was one. He watched the distant plume of smoke rising from a chimney that had lain cold and idle for nearly three years now. … Never mind that, the question at hand was whether or not he had overexerted himself, whether there was or was not a new fire in that old hearth, and whether he ought to go see what was happening in that unlucky cottage. He braced his hands against his windowsill and considered the options.”

    Summary

    Dolly Oblonskaya never precisely introduces her old friend to her children’s new tutor, no.

    She does put one lonely man in a room with the other again and again and again...and to her delight Konstantin Levin and Francisco Garupe take care of the rest.

    Or, this is the story of how an idealistic young Russian aristocrat helps heal a mourning young Jesuit priest, one very cold Moscow winter.

    Summary

    In which Siska gently cradles Kostya's face, and smiles.

    The rightness of dancing slow, slower, slowest until, in the slanting light of the moon, they pull far enough back to see one another's eyes.

    Not too far away wood snapped loud as the fire fed, but Francisco didn't hear, too busy cupping Kostya's jaw and apropos of everything saying "You're you."

    Summary

    This time I attempt to draw what Kostya sees when he gazes at Siska.

    Kostya glanced again at the distant table. At shadows hollowing cheeks and eyes and between the bones of a man's hand, at the fall of long black hair to the collar of a black coat. Yes, that was the word, dark. The priest was dark but somehow bright too, like hot coals banked beneath ash.

    ... Konstantin nodded and nodded, his mind entirely muddling the words parrot with baby with rain with fire with children with priest, and out of all of that he was left with the image of a dark-haired man sitting at his fire, smiling at him and talking and talking.

    Summary

    In which I attempt to draw what Siska sees when he gazes at Kostya.

    So, because he's believed all his life in angels, in holy fire and causes just, Francisco Garupe looked straight into the green eyes of a red-haired seraph, and he said, "Yes, yes, yes."

    Summary

    He corners her in his study, pinning her in place with his insufferable civility.

    “I must warn you about something.” It angers her that he does not meet her eye, that he speaks to their floor like looking at her will cause him even more shame. “Your behavior, whether it be incidental or not, will inevitably lead to talk that will bring humiliation upon our marriage.” He draws in a shaky breath, still avoiding her eye as he looks for more words to chide her with.

    She will not stand for it.

    “I am tired, and you are being evasive. Speak plainly if you must speak at all, or else I will end this conversation and go to bed.”

    His head shoots up at her words, his eyes cutting into her as he sees that her threat is true. There’s anger there, and she thinks, resentment. It’s thrilling in the most perverse way.
